I want to add an outlet on my front lawn, I installed a brick wall and want to install lights under the lip of the wall. I got a price of 825.00 to run it under ground and i cant afford it now so I went to lowes and got 14-2 OUTDOOR gray wiring, also got a GFI and weatherproof box and cover. My question is can i use raceway and come out of a hole from my garage and attached to another wall run along the outside wall to the lawn?

I've never heard of any raceway being approved for outdoor use
And I doubt it is rated for protection

There are very specific rules regarding installation, burial depth etc
The cover must be the newer in-use wet cover

Pvc

The only reason i didnt wanna go with PVC was cause it will be seen and wont look that good in the middle of my wall, the reason i wanted to go with the raceway was cause its smaller and after painted and clear caulked wont be noticed that much.

The raceway you posted will rust out very quickly and I am not sure if it is even listed for exterior use.

PVC can be painted or you could bury it so it will not be seen.
